Man City kicks off season with new Premium Seat Hospitality Experiences

To coincide with Manchester City Football Club’s ongoing stadium expansion, which will confirm the Club as the third largest ground in England’s Premier League, City has introduced all new Premium Seating and renovated its popular Legends Lounge at the world-renowned Etihad Stadium.

All three hospitality spaces are being showcased in a new sales showroom, designed to give fans a preview of new facilities and the Club’s enhanced hospitality offering.

The introduction of 93:20 and Joe’s Premium Seating allows fans an entry level to matchday hospitality, whilst the new-look Legends Lounge – pictured above – adds to Manchester City’s already unrivalled range of premium hospitality facilities, which have been given a radical overhaul over the last three years.

The most exclusive premium seat option is 93:20, which provides a new matchday experience for fans to watch the game from the comfort of a padded seat, with some of the best views of the match from either the East or Colin Bell stands. To accompany these premium seats, fans will have access to a brand new 1,800-capacity, private sports bar; named after the dramatic slip-second in time that Sergio Aguero clinched them the 2012 Premier League Title for the first time in 44 years.

93:20 is modern and minimalist in style with clean lines. Impressive wall and ceiling graphics tell the 93:20 story through various eyes, including Sergio Aguero, who describes how the game unfolded for him to score his wonder goal and commentator Martin Tyler, whose match commentary excited fans around the world.

The all new Joe’s bar is a stunning addition to the club’s hospitality offering. Joe’s is a vibrant, buzzy sports bar dedicated to the Club’s most successful manager, Joe Mercer, who reigned between 1965-1971, winning the Club the First Division championship 1967-68, the FA Cup in 1969, the League Cup in 1970, and European Cup Winners’ Cup in 1970. The bar’s design features graphics, imagery and etchings across all surfaces including the walls, windows and the bar itself, telling Joe’s story through quotes and references of his finest moments.

As a further commitment to the Club’s stadium enhancement, the renovation of the ever-popular Legends Suite has evolved the venue into a modern, panoramic 450-seater restaurant with breath-taking views across the pitch, making it the largest hospitality lounge within The Etihad.

The open-plan, 132-table Legends restaurant is named after the many legends that have played, managed and lead the club to where it is today. Fans visiting Legends will be able to experience the thrill of watching new legends play on the pitch, and they will also have the chance to spot a real legend enjoying the facilities.

All three new hospitality facilities incorporate high quality, modern design and exude the warm welcoming atmosphere that the Club is known for, providing matchday experiences like no other club in UK football.
